president bashar al assad that there will be serious consequences if he uses chemical weapons against his own weapon. >> this regime is a real problem for us. its alliance with iran, its possession of chemical weapons, weapons of mass destruction. its human rights record, its support of terrorism. this is a regime we would like to get out of the way. we don't want to see it replaced with people we don't support either. >>> the syrian foreign ministry denies they have plans to use chemical weapons. >>> the family of jovan belcher is speaking publically for the first time since he fatally shot his girl friend and killed himself. belcher's sister and uncle stood by his aunt as she spoke outside the home where the football star lived with 22-year-old kasandra perkins and their 3-month-old daughter. >> we will cherish the wonderful memories we have of javon and pray those memory also bring us peace as we grapple to understand the unpredictable and tragic ending of his life and the life of kasandra perkins. >> kansas city police confirm that the gun used by belcher was purchased legally. belche
